This weekend I made a few different foodie items for my baby shower. I know I mentioned it in a previous entry, but my mom and I were supposed to make a savory casserole (which I had volunteered to make) and twisties, which my mom had volunteered. I planned to put the casserole together on Saturday afternoon before she arrived, and then we would just bake it on Sunday morning before we left! The twisties had to be done on Sunday because they are just 3000x better when they are fresh!
Now the twisties, I got a little creative with my photography and took step pictures. I will CONSIDER sharing the recipe, but I am not going to do it yet. I think my family likes the fact that it's a special thing, but you can at least see the steps and see how easy they really are!
So you start with Pillsbury crescent rolls. Unroll them onto a cutting board in rectangles and press the diagonal seams together (since the rolls are normally triangles).
Cut each "sandwich" into 8 approximately equal strips.
My whole extended family (as well as those we bring into the family like J and Rachie's husband Chris!) LOVE these, and anyone who went to school with my siblings and I know them because they were the birthday treat of choice (teachers would talk about getting the next sibling in their class, so they could get them too!)
They are basically like little cinnamon rolls, and OH SO DELICIOUS.
Anything special like this your family makes and everyone knows about?
